Lionhead Studios has announced that it is working on a title update for Fable Anniversary that should increase the game’s overall stability, following several reports of crashes.
A bug reporting thread on the game’s official forum has over 200 replies, with the majority reporting the game crashing, freezing, or locking up. In response to the thread a Lionhead developer posted the following: “Our number one priority at the moment is to make sure the stability issues you are experiencing are fixed.
“We’ve been working hard over the past few days to track down and identify the issues which cause your games to freeze/lock up (we know how annoying that is).
“We’ve identified some potential stability issues that may be the cause of your lockups/freezes, and there will be another title update to patch the game and hopefully fix those.
“Of course, the process of creating a title update isn’t instantaneous and we want to be very careful not to cause any further issues by rolling out such an update, therefore thorough testing is necessary before push anything out publicly.
“There’s no current ETA on when this title update will be available, however I will endeavor to get updates for you as regularly as possible, and as soon as I can give a time frame I will be sure to let you know.”
Ray Carsillo recently said in our Fable Anniversary review: “Fable still has some charming elements that have stood the test of time and survive in Fable Anniversary. But most of the game shows its age, so if you played Fable or Fable: The Lost Chapters the first time around, there’s little here to bring you back for more.”
